Composited motion

Congress is concerned by the lack of legislation allowing trade unions to have direct access to workers in unorganised workplaces. There is legislation enshrined in New Zealand which allows trade unions the right to approach workers in their workplaces without obstruction from anti-union employers, which has seen a significant growth in trade union membership.

Congress calls on present and future governments to legislate to incorporate access laws for all trade unions onto the statute book.
